21Will Ferrell

I think he's hysterical, intelligent and wonderful. I love every movie I've ever seen him in.

Fabulous and hysterical comedian and actor who can sing as well

What an amazing comedic actor. Love him so much

Not very versatile in his comedy acting skills. Plays every comedy the same way. Whenever you are to see a movie that you didn't see yet with him as lead role, you can be sure that it will be the same acting as every movie you already saw with him. OK for two or three comedies seeing the way he plays but after a while it gets boring.

22David Caruso

Oh my god people are so harsh to judge other actors before you write something on this page first take a look at your self it is not nice to belittle people and that of actors who make more money than you and I any ways getting back to David Caruso he was awesome in Jade what a great detective he made and his acting was flawless in every way. And.C.S.I. Miami. He loves the camera in a different way to portray a good cop and has a lot of meaning behind it. Thanks. For everything David. Keep up the good work

What would he do without sunglasses?

Caruso is genuinely talented... in a single type of role. Well a single role actually. That's quite limiting but still better than many hacks on this list.

23Jessica AlbaJessica Marie Alba is an American actress, model and businesswoman. She has won various awards for her acting, including the Choice Actress Teen Choice Award and Saturn Award for Best Actress on Television, and a Golden Globe nomination for her lead role in the television series Dark Angel.

Dudes! Vote her.. She is not an actress.. Still she gets millions of dollars..

I don't think that Jessica Alba is a bad actress like the media are trying to tell us ( once they spread the word it's like suddenly everybody agrees ). She was awesome good in the T.V. series " Dark angel " but after that people noticed her just for her good looks ( and don't tell me that she's ugly ) and not for her acting skills anymore. She didn't get many chances to play descent movies after that. Now and then there's a good movie and when that happens she gives very good performances. I think she's rather underrated for her acting. People seems only to put her down because it's becoming almost normal after all the media " lies " to do so. The truth is that she's not a bad actress, but one who deserves better roles.

Brutal actress... she NEVER sounds like shes not reading the script when she talks on film. Her emotions are as obviously phony as her... - VADERtheIMPALER

Never had to turn off a movie of her because it was too awful to see her acting. It's the opposite. Whenever I see her in a movie I'm delighted to see her play. She's captivating, magnetic and she has a lot of " on-screen " charisma. She is not that bad as an actress. Besides, she's very humble about her acting skills. She knows that she has some limitations and is not afraid to tell or Judge herself for that. She don't brag about her acting skills like some other really overrated actresses who thinks that they are the best. She's very adorable with her fans also, so, I can't believe that some people really hate or dislike her.

She's underrated. Subtle acting wide range.

25Miley Cyrus

She Can't Act. She Is A Wannabe Bad Girl She Tries To Get Attention From Copying Lindsay And Britney. She Can't Act She Can't Sing She Can't Dance. She is famous for being famous. She Is copying Britney about how she doesn't about anyone and does whatever she wants like smoking at 18. At least Britney has changed the world with her music.

I see lots of other actors and actresses that are not as famous but way better at acting

Miley is one of the most overrated celebs of the 21s century simply by the fact that she is from that Cyrus familly who is known to have one hit and it's not even a decent one. And last that show of hers that my daughter watches its disgracing the whole Disney franchise.

A media creation. Can't act can't sing. This is Billy Ray Cyrus' daughter for crikey sake. She's crying out for attention because she can't hack it. Take a look at other Disney former stars. Zac Efron, Selena Gomez they rely on talent.

26George ClooneyGeorge Timothy Clooney is an American actor, filmmaker and activist. He has received three Golden Globe Awards for his work as an actor and two Academy Awards, one for acting and the other for producing.

Drop dead gorgeous and oozing charisma. Love to watch him. He was amazing in "The Descendants"

Charming and intelligent as all get out. What a cool guy. The most handsome actor that ever was

This actor is richly authentic in every role he has ever taken on. He is believable and understated when that is what is called for. He is a gracious actor who makes his costars shine, as well. I'm so grateful for every movie he has ever entertained us with.

He sure is our answer to Cary Grant

27Lindsey Lohan

Why does the corporate media keep pushing this washed up skank? She was never a good actress and has done nothing professionally or privately worth following. It's like when a talentless kid actress grows up, and refuses to accept the fact that she's a has-been. Can we all save our writing talents and concentrate on actors who actually work, and are talented? The constant pushing of this mediocre D-Lister proves that the corporate controllers of the movie and media industries want young girls to look up to and copy what filth like Lohan does. Let's all end this train-wreck now by ignoring her. Ignore the media accounts, boycott the blogs who talk about her, and boycott the products of any company that sponsors on any T.V. network that airs stories about her. STOP ENCOURAGING MEDIOCRE HACKS!

Oh Lindsay, how the mighty have fallen or rather the how the child idol has fallen. She might have some talent but her career has plummeted sharply off the cliff. I used to love her when I was younger (12-14 years of age), but I then realized that there were people who were so much better. While she is just getting back in the game, she is still overrated right now and some of her acting is not always that great. (E.G. saturday night live). Lindsay, if you want to get back on track, prove to us that you can still act more than just a good movie or two.

I actually think she's a great actress. Not a great personal life but an intelligent thoughtful actress who informs her roles with authenticity and heart.

An original and highly intelligent performer

28Halle Berry

Never understood all the hoopla. Her acting is no better than any of my high school students', who are only doing it for some extra credit.

She's an ok actor but doesn't deserve the fame she's got right now.

Needs more serious acting roles. We already know you can be a drug addict, retarded cat, and a bikini clad spy

Worst academy speech EVER!

They had multiple top 5 hits such as "Say My Name", "Survivor", "Independent Women", "Bootylicious", and "Jumpin', Jumpin" from 1999 to 2004 . ...read more.

Even awful Paris Hilton is better actress than Knowles.
Beyonce sucks literally

Beyonce is way too overrated. She should be the first one one this list

She is beautiful but she cannot act and cannot talk. yes she can sing but 90% of her songs are rubbish! I don't trust her, I believe she is an Illuminati puppet!

Beyond my taste.

30Nicole KidmanNicole Mary Kidman is an Australian-American actress and film producer. Kidman's breakthrough roles were in the 1989 feature film thriller Dead Calm and television thriller miniseries Bangkok Hilton.

Why do people think she's sexy? She's hideous. Only half decent film she's in was Practical Magic, where she was totally outshone by Sandra Bullock. I walked out of Eyes Wide Shut half way through.

Terribly self conscious actress! The only reason she made it in Hollywood was her marriage to Tom. So many flops. I don't watch movies with her ie Moulin Rouge (even though I think Ewan is great) and Australia. Gosh, it would be painful to have to watch her. Vain, self conscious and definitely not a great actor. Oh and she stuck a fake nose on and got a best supporting actress award. PLEASE!

Love her. Good but not great. I can list many movies of her's I like. She awesome. So gorgeous. So hot. One of my favorite actresses ever. She acted rings around her husband in 'Eyes Wide Shut'. She turns me on so much. Would love to meet her.

Okay guys, this is about OVERRATED actors and actresses, not about how sexy they are, so don't rate them on that

31Vin DieselMark Sinclair, better known by his stage name Vin Diesel, is an American actor, producer, director, and screenwriter.

He's the best actor I've ever seen. I absolutely love and adore him

Not a good actor in any way, but if he sticks to tough guys roles so long as it isn't mindless Fast and Furious #? I can sometimes make it a guilty pleasure such as with Pitch Black and Riddick.

He has never changed his way of acting.. Same as always..

ACTOR? Joke, Not attraction, funny shaped meat head

32Taylor Lautner

Yes you have a really nice body, but one nothing but another member of the cast from twilight who can't act. - LavenderMusic

How are Keanu Reeves, and Johnny Depp worse actors than
A guy who does nothing but take his shirt off?
Taylor Lautner should be number 1 period.

I have no idea why people like him. He plays the worst werewolf in the history of cinema.

Can't act, proved it from a young age.

I find him real and endearing. Absolutely adore him.

Such a capable and authentic actor. One of the best

I love this guy. Always look forwArd to seeing any movie he's in. Great skill.

Cool gets it done.

34Johnny DeppJohn Christopher "Johnny" Depp II is an American actor, producer, and musician. He has won the Golden Globe Award and Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actor.

Things you never have to ask : Geez I wonder if Johnny Depp is going to play a weird/quirky character in this movie?

Yes Johnny bloody Depp might be good at playing a wacky, almost psychopathic character, but that's ALL he is good at. It seriously annoys me how everyone thinks he's the greatest thing on earth because he's really, really not. Nor is he even that good-looking... just gonna throw that out there.

You obviously have not seen his older work. And regarding his Tim Burton roles... He is one of the BEST character actors EVER! You are just simply wrong and have not watched enough movies to judge him as an actor

I wouldn't call jonny the worst actor today, but sadly I believe he'll get the next oscar he's nominated for. Just like the most overrated actor we fuss over today denzel.

So tired of the quirky stuff and he doesn't even do that good. I don't even find him attractive. - ChatonNoir

35Hilary DuffHilary Erhard Duff is an American actress and singer. Duff began her acting career at a young age, and quickly became labeled a teen idol as the starring titular character in the television series Lizzie McGuire.

So adorable with wonderful heart wrenching performances. Love, love, love her.

Intelligent and warm actress. You can't help but to see her kindness as it always shines through

I wouldn't call her as an overrated actress. After all, a talented actress like her deserves to be on the spotlights.

Love her warm and wonderful actress

36Charlize Theron

This actress can do it all! Drama, action, comedy, you name it. Her acting is almost natural ( it looks like she don't act ), like she " IS " the person in real life whatever character she's portraying in the movie. This actress doesn't belong on this list. She's one of the best actresses of all time.

Good. Probably the hottest female actress on the planet. Love her most of her movies. My favorite movie of her's is 'The Cider House Rules'. She does take risks. She was good in 'Monster' and deserved her Oscar win. Very talented and also very smart. She recently admitted to breaking up with a guy solely because the only reason why she was with him was because she found him attractive. Very honest and sincere. Like her a lot.

Fabulous actress whose looks are as spellbinding as her delivery.

Ooh baby she can act.

37Julia RobertsJulia Fiona Roberts is an American actress and producer. She became a Hollywood star after headlining the romantic comedy Pretty Woman, which grossed US$464 million worldwide.

People always put her in the "sexy woman" role, but she is ugly as a stick. But side roles, suit her well.

She just plays herself in every movie. - CraZee

Can't stand her. Can't agree more that she is exactly the same in every movie, playing herself. And that face taking over smile of hers is so tired and insincere. In Larry Crowne she was so boring, and banking doe in lack-less and lazy acting on her part. Some one please get her of the screen already. - Pitstop325

Not talented, not attractive, does seem phony

38Robert De Niro

Probably the best actor of his generation. And he takes risks. I'm always AMAZED at the risky roles he takes too. The comedies parts he's tried even though he's not really good at least he tries. Guy has NO FEAR. True actor.

Robert De Niro is one of the greatest actors of all time. What the hell is he doing on this list. Don't believe me? Watch The GodfatherP Pt. 2, Goodfellas, Heat, Silver Linings Playbook, Casino, Frankenstein (even though it wasnt the greatest movie, De Niro was amazing like in all of his movies)
This list has no credibility whatsoever

He was amazing in the 70's and in Raging Bull, since then he's become a shadow of a great actor-who only works for the money.

Yes, overrated. And he'll do anything for a buck these days

39Blake Lively

Do you think she can act? No. She looked really ordinary.

I was horrified when I saw that this woman is considered beautiful by American standards. I find her so plain and ordinary. She isn't a very good or versatile actress either

I firmly don't think she is a beauty, although she deserves a sexy girl. She got too many gossip with many guys, which of them is Leo. The relationship with those guys were often breif.

Not about the sexiness guys, it's about how overrated they are, get a grip

He has received three Golden Globe awards, a Tony Award, and two Academy Awards: Best Supporting Actor for the historical war drama film Glory and Best Actor for his role as a corrupt cop in the crime thriller Training Day.

Great actor, I don't think I've ever seen a bad movie he was in

You should be ashamed to put him on the same list as kim kardashian and Paris hilton

Superb actor; very credible as a courageous hero or vulnerable anti-hero.

Thank u he sucks I hate him he is not talented what so ever
